Been a helluva year, folks. Up/down, good/bad, serene/wild. I’m ready for a new start. For all of you who had a great 2013, may 2014 be even better. Those of you who had hard times this year, stay strong: here’s hoping 2014 will surprise us all with marvels, joys, and kindnesses we didn’t expect. Including the ones we offer each other.
